(EnergyAsia, June 5 2012, Tuesday) — L & L Energy Inc, a US company with a five-year track record of profitable underground coal mining and distribution operations in China, said it has started delivering coal to Datang International Power Generation Co Ltd and a new customer, Luk Fook Co Ltd.

On May 14, the Seattle-based company said its DaXing wholesale subsidiary delivered the first shipment through its new loading facilities at ShinPingBa railroad station in Guizhou province to one of Luk Fook’s facilities. L&L said it expects larger sales contracts with Luk Fook to follow.

Earlier, on April 5, L&L announced that DaXing had secured a year-long deal to supply 20,000 tons of thermal coal per month to Datang Utility’s Heshan power plant. The first shipment has been aggregated at L&L’s facilities at ShinPingBa station and delivered to Datang Utility.

L&L’s chairman and CEO, Dickson Lee, said:

“I am very pleased with the speed we have been able to deliver coal to our new customers. These new sales are a product of our improved logistics platform. I look forward to executing large coal sales this year, bringing significant new revenue from our DaXing subsidiary in the future.”
